If you’re working hard to grow your blog, handmade shop, or small business, you’re probably overwhelmed. I’ll bet there are a lot of things you wish you had time to do, but sadly, life calls and there’s no time for anything other than the bare essentials to keep your business afloat.
Or, maybe there are things you simply don’t know how to do and you could use a little guidance from someone who’s been there, done that.
Most likely, it’s all you can do to get the big stuff done – forget about all those little time-consuming tasks on your to-do list that keep getting pushed aside while you tackle the more important projects that keep your business moving forward.
Working with a Virtual Assistant may be the solution to all your problems. There are so many things a VA can help you with, and what I hear from my clients is their only regret is that they wish they’d started working with me sooner.
So why should you take the plunge and partner with a VA? Here are just 5 reasons to work with a Virtual Assistant.
- If you’re a blogger, you need a partner who knows the ins and outs of managing a blog. When you work with a VA who has blogging experience, you get instant peace of mind just knowing that you’re working with someone who understands your goals and knows what to do to help you reach them.
- When you work with a VA, you pay only for the time you need. When there’s no work to be done, you’re not paying an employee to sit at her desk and file her nails because she has nothing better to do. The time your VA devotes to you and your business is always productive time, and it always saves you time and money.
- With a Virtual Assistant, you don’t have to provide office space, equipment, or supplies. You also don’t pay for benefits, vacation and sick days, taxes, or training. Virtual Assistants are business owners who cover their own expenses so you don’t have to.
- A good VA knows people. As soon as she joins your team, your VA’s network automatically becomes your network. Your opportunities are increased simply by having her on your team.
- When you’re away from your blog or business, your VA is still there making sure that things get done on time. Go ahead, take that vacation! Heck, just take an afternoon off. Everyone needs to unplug now and then! Your VA will hold down the fort while you’re grabbing a little R & R, so there’s no reason to have that “Back to Work Dread” after a little time off.
